World Cup 2010 Final, Spain Vs. Netherlands: Clever Dutch Corner Kick Goes Wanting

Perhaps the Netherlands' best chance of the young match failed to produce a shot on goal, the Dutch possibly wasting their chance to exploit Spain on a corner kick.

From the right of goal, Arjen Robben played a corner kick along the ground to the edge of the penalty area, where Mark van Bommel one-touched it to the left of goal for an open Joris Mathijsen.  The center back's footwork failed him, and his attempt to open his left foot on the pass missed.

The World Cup final remains scoreless in the 40th minute.
